HAYWARD, Calif., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
(NASDAQ: QCOR) today announced that it has made a $25,000 donation to the
Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland in support of the Early
Intervention Services program.

Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland is a premier, not-for-profit
medical center for children in Northern California, and is the only hospital
in the East Bay that is 100% devoted to pediatrics. Their Early Intervention
Services program supports the well-being, development and caregiving
relationships of infants and young children (up to age 6) who have
developmental, social-emotional and medically related vulnerabilities or
disabilities.

"Questcor is committed to giving back to our local community," said Steve
Cartt, Chief Operating Officer for Questcor. "We feel privileged to be able to
support such a worthy institution, particularly one that is funded solely by
grants and charitable contributions. Our hope is that these funds will help
improve the quality of life for some Bay Area children who are in need."

In addition to the financial contribution, Mr. Cartt noted that Questcor
employees in Hayward created get well cards for children being treated at the
hospital. These cards are distributed to children on their lunch trays. "In
addition to the donation, we wanted to find a way to more personally connect
with the children and their families, especially during the holiday season,"
Mr. Cartt said. "This seemed to be a great way to do it."

Susan Greenwald, Director of Early Intervention Services, shared, "We're
grateful for Questcor's generous donation and look forward to putting the
money to good use serving children and families. We also appreciate the time
and effort Questcor employees gave to produce beautiful get-well cards. I
know they will help lift the spirits of our courageous young patients."
